Ellie Herring – Touch Point by Chris

Why is it that electronic music seems to be a boys club? I can rattle off a few female artists, sure; Rainbow ChanTokimonsta, BoyfriendSleep ∞ Over… but when it comes down to it, the majority of guys out there producing beats are just that- guys!

Ellie Herring‘s atmospheric downtempo pieces brink on the experimental- a Heligoland era- Massive Attack- or eerie evil cousin of UNKLE. Something about Defect puts me in the mindset of a mouldy tunnel- the vocal line teeters precariously on the edge of ‘creepy’, yet manages to avoid being un-nerving. Touch Point is over a year-old now, off of a release on Racecar Productions. I feel it’s more accessible than her newer tracks, while staying true to her dark sound. It’s also available for free download off of her Soundcloud which is always a bonus. If you are feeling like something a little more comforting- her Boards of Canada (Damp Heart Mix) is nice to have on in the background (also on Soundcloud).
